This Site is Awesome
I've been coming here a wk & have d'loaded abt 1,000 books on histories & genealogy for American Colonies, as well as the United Kingdom.
I have yet to come across a book that wasn't able to open. If I get a bad download then I try a 2nd or 3rd time. If not it is easily enough to delete. These books have an awesome scan quality about them. It is also great to have the source data so handy. Dealing with family history & genealogy you want your sourcing data easy to acquire. This site sure beats the "heck" out of the other book site. When you download a book from there & I was doing just that before I came across (this site on Electric Scotland, as an external link), you never know what you will get. I'm thrilled to have found it. Most of the books there are crooked on the page, the scans are weak & very faded. The worst thing I'd seen there was their handling of books. I saw many with no protective covering to keep oils off the pages. On some scans the hands of the one scanning obscured much of the text.
So, in MHO, if this person wants to vent or bitch abt something they should put it somewhere that it is more deserving.
Oh, also BTW, this book opened very easily & doesn't have a problem in any way.
